Several Israeli army jeeps invaded, on Saturday evening, Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, injured four Palestinians, including a medic, and caused scores to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.
Mohammad Awad, a local media activist in Beit Ummar, said the soldiers invaded many areas in the town, especially Mothallath al-Ein area, and attacked many Palestinian youngsters, who protested the invasion.
Awad added that the soldiers shot three young men with rubber-coated steel bullets; one in his neck, and two in their legs and arms, in addition to causing many others to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.
He also stated that the soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets at a car of a local medic, who rushed to render aid to wounded Palestinians, before a bullet smashed his carâs front shield, causing him to suffer various cuts and bruises, especially to his face.
It is worth mentioning that the soldiers posted warning messages on the various walls of the town, threatening âsevere and extensive punishmentâ against the locals âif they do not end their protests.â
